Fall Travel Outfit – mark. Sweat Equity Dress

Fall is kind of a perfect time to travel.  You can get better rates since it’s the off season with school back in session and you still have excellent weather.  Even if it’s just a weekend getaway, you know, for like your upcoming anniversary or something ;)… or even a day trip!  Regardless, I have the perfect outfit for sitting comfortably while traveling and looking chic while out and about with the mark. Sweat Equity Dress.

The mark. Sweat Equity Dress is a sweatshirt dress in a deep navy with houndstooth embossed pattern.  What I absolutely adore about this dress is it’s comfortable, so soft and easy to wear.  It’s basically my current favorite fall item!

I paired the mark. Sweat Equity dress with the mark. Buckled In Tote.  This bag is your perfect travel companion.  It’s not too big to be a normal purse but big enough to tote all those extras you bring traveling, like your aviators…

Mid Month Makeover – $100 To Update Your September

“Do you remember the 21st night of September?  Love was changing the minds of pretenders.  While chasing the clouds away”… who doesn’t sing a little Earth Wind and Fire come September?  September is kinda like a re-fresh with everything back to school and fall-tastic, so here’s my picks on what to refresh your September with and only spending $100 because let’s face it all these fun fall activities add up!

Mid Month Makeover - $100 To Update Your September

Mid Month Makeover – $100 To Update Your September

mark. Sweat Equity Dress $40 – So this is a deep dark navy sweatshirt dress with a textured houndstooth pattern… why is it my top pick?  Not just because it’s houndstooth but it’s a super versatile item for September.  Wear it as a dress as the weather still a little warm with a suede sandal, a flat or a pair of chucks for weekend.  Then as it cools down switch to a bootie or boot and as it gets even colder layer it with leggings or tights or even a collard shirt for a tailored look.  All while being extremely soft and comfy in a sweatshirt dress!  Navy is a little more chic and unexpected from your normal black, but because it’s so dark it will look really nice paired against black.

mark. Buckled In Tote $44 – Everyone needs a good fall bag and basic black is always a good decision.  I like this one because it’s big enough to fit everything you need to go from work to weeked and can even double as a travel bag while still not being TOO big.  It rests easy on the shoulder, has a crucial functional zip pocket on the outside  and fun details with the buckles.  Plus the material is really easy to clean.

mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Bars $16 – Just like switching up your wardrobe you need to switch up your makeup for the fall too.  You’re coming off of your summer glow so the warm bronzes, golds and peaches in this set are prefect.  Plus it’s a multitasker, one product for eyes, bronzer and highlighter and will pair perfectly with a fall lip no matter if you go berry, vampy or nude.  See how to use this product to strobe here and a golden look here.

My current obsessories are these new pieces from mark.’s continental shift collection for fall, where East meets West for some serious obsession worthy style.  Besides these jewelry items there’s also a killer obi belt, a classic camel tote and a fun bag charm, but it’s these statement pieces that has me swooning.

Golden Dynasty earrings during the golden hour!  I just LOVE these earrings, granted they are big but look stunning on, go with everything and really fun in design.  Currently I love these right now with my hair up in a messy pony and my easy summer pieces, but as a fall item they’re just as stunning as we transition!

I’ve been loving big statement rings just by themselves to steal the show.  With this duo you can wear them together or separate, either way they make an impact.  The jewels swing green or more blue depending on the light.

The tassel necklace trend gets some far east glam with jade stones and bright gold.  I just love this unusual take on a tassel and it’s layered detail.  It’s really easy to wear, give you statement necklace look without being too chunky.

What To Wear: Black Friday Shopping

 

What To Wear:  Black Friday

What To Wear: Black Friday

We’re almost to my favorite holiday… Black Friday!  (I kid, I kid) but I do love a good shopping day trip especially when there are mega sales and festive holiday spirit galore!  Don’t let the day get cut short by not wearing the right things.  Here are few tips for dressing for Black Friday.

1. Start With The Right Shoes

Wear A Walkable Shoe

Wear A Walkable Shoe

If your feet are miserable you are miserable.  It’s that simple.  So wear something walkable, comfortable and warm.  A good riding boot/flat boot is always a good choice or a bootie with a thick low heel like these burgundy ones from mark.

Hmm what to buy this black Friday!?

2.  Dress in Layers

Layer Up A Cami, Sweater, Jacket, Scarf

You’re going to go from cold to warm to hot so dress in layers that you can easily strip off.  I like wearing a open front cardi sweater because for me it’s the perfect not to hot not to cold layer.  AND when you’re shopping especially on a busy day like black friday you’re not going to wait in line for fitting rooms.  This way you can easily take it off and try on tops/sweaters/jackets even if you’re just getting an idea of how something runs as you gift hunt.

3.  Bring The Right Jacket

Standing out in the lines (if you do such a thing) can get cold or start to rain/snow so a longer jacket with a hood is a good bet.  Double bonus if it has a lot of pockets so you can stash things like change and your phone quickly.

4.  Go Hands Free

Wear a cross body bag so you’re not bogged down by a big satchel.  This will help keep you hands free for touching the merchandise and being an efficient shopper!

5.  Bring a scarf and hair tie.

A scarf will just be that added warmth when you’re outside or when you’re just a bit to hot for your jacket.  I know this seems super random but nothing is worse when you’re hairs all in your face when you’re fighting the shoppers and weather!   These two accessories are your must haves.
